Managing user rights and usergroups

In One Identity Safeguard for Privileged Sessions (SPS), user rights can be assigned to usergroups. SPS has numerous usergroups defined by default, but custom user groups can be defined as well. Every group has a set of privileges: which pages of the SPS web interface it can access, and whether it can only view (read) or also modify (read & write/perform) those pages or perform certain actions.

NOTE:

Every group has either read or read & write/perform privileges to a set of pages.
